    Default Question for those that moved from Galaxy Nexus to SGIII?..

    How would you compare the battery life on the SG3 to the GNex? The GNex battery is unbelievable, I admit it. I'm rocking a 2100mah battery an it still drains quicker then I think it should.

    Can you rock the SG3 all day while doing a little browsing, redditing, FB'in an a few 5 minute video clips a day, an still have a large amount of battery?

    they are night and day. Though I did not come from a gnex, I came from worse with an extended battery. I easily get around 18 hours a day, sometimes as high as 30ish depending on usage. You should have no problem making it through the day with what you described

    Sweet, bro. Thanks. I'm going for it then. Have you tried the super Nexus's ROM, yet?

    The extended battery on my gnex got me 6 hours. The normal battery on the S3 is much better.

    The stock battery on my GNex got me around 4-6hrs...If I didn't use it much. I charge my S3 once a day and use the hell out of it.

    I came from extended batter nexus which I probably got 8 hrs if I was lucky to rocking the stock batter S3 which can go easily 12 hrs with still 30 percent left. Gotta think something was seriously wrong with the gnex for them to even be able to sell it with that kind of battery life is crazy.

    the only real thing that sucks about TW is the color scheme on some things. That can be taken care of with a launcher. Yes it is still a bit heavy, but no skin slows down phones anymore, they just take up space. Fortunately Samsung has not thrown away the SD card yes so that is not an issue (You can go up to 96 GB).

    If you are really missing Stock, you can flash any number of CM10 or AOKP ROMs with easy and not have to really worry about bricking. it (yes it could happen but samsungs are hard)

    it isnt that anything was wrong, it was just old tech. No SoC like the newer phones which means crappy battery.

    Stock battery life on the S3 is about double to what I got on the gnex. I didn't have any issues with my gnex except poor battery life. No matter what rom/kernel combo I tried with it I rarely got to 3 hours of screen on time. On the S3 its not uncommon to get close to 5.
